(3032, Moonee Valley City)

A residential area in Flemington between Mount Alexander Road and CityLink, Travancore took its name from Travancore House (and thus the Indian State), formerly owned by Hugh Glass but renamed by later occupant Sir John Madden, Victorian Chief Justice and exporter of horses to India. When the property was subdivided in the 1920s, a number of streets took Indian or Asian names (Mooltan, Cashmere, Lucknow, Mangalore, Madura). Travancore House was demolished in the 1940s and a special education school developed on the site.
